Oktoberfest pride carries on

October 16, 2012
The Journal

To the editor:

Another Oktoberfest is gone and yet the pride continues to flow from everyone who was able to be there. Led by Audra, Terry, Eric and the entire Chamber staff and board, they did an outstanding job of organizing and executing another great event. We should all be proud of New Ulm and its surrounding area. Every end of town was bustling with crowds of folks from all over the state and country. While at my shop, I talked to one couple who comes every year from Idaho and all the folks who made the trek from the Cities and beyond.

Sure it rained, but that did not damper anyone's spirit. I would argue the rain and cool weather added to the genuine nature of the event. It showed people who would come rain or shine, to show their German pride and their "fun" side. Some even came for no other reason than to be German for a Day. Great Job New Ulm, we "have it," that one thing people want to experience - Rain or Shine!
